That more or less worked, it still failed:

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/src/glibc/build/nptl/tst-once5.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.text' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

But it does that after building the tst-robustpi8 thing, so I seem to
have all I need here.

Indeed, that seems to work:

$ ./elf/ --library-path .:./math:./elf:./dlfcn:./nss:./nis:./rt:./resolv:./crypt:./mathvec:./support:./nptl ./nptl/tst-robustpi8
tst-robustpi8: ../nptl/pthread_mutex_lock.c:424: __pthread_mutex_lock_full: Assertion `INTERNAL_SYSCALL_ERRNO (e, __err) != ESRCH || !robust' failed.
